Where to download asian language package for XP SP3?

Q: Where to download asian language package for XP SP3?

My computer can't display chinese characters. When i went to language settings and installed east asian language, it required me to use the Windows SP3 CD. but i don't have the cd. i thought to download the language files on internet, but i can't find it. Does anyone know where to download it? or is there another way to display chinese characters on my system without CD? Thanks for the help.

Preferred Solution: Where to download asian language package for XP SP3?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Where to download asian language package for XP SP3?

Last time I had to do this was on a linux system, haven't actually had to do it on a Windows box. Try this:

Once SP3 is installed, change your language settings, and let your system update download the language pack from Microsoft.

If I currently get an average of 20mbps using a linksys n router with comcast as my ISP. If I upgrade to an ac router, and assuming I have ac compatible devices, will I get any significant increase in wifi speed? I wasn't sure if I need to get a faster internet tier from Comcast or not. AC routers promise much faster speeds (400mbps) but comcast says they provide me with 25 tops. Can I just upgrade my router or do I have to pay more to comcast?

A:Will 802.11ac router increase download speed?

If 25mbps is all that comcast is providing, u are doing all u can expect if u are receiving 20 u are doing all u can expect with that plan. changing u'r router is not going to help in the least.

I've never come across this and need a few more heads on this. All of a sudden this evening I am unable to upload to the internet. I've tried uploading to Facebook, gmail, and drop box all with a laptop, galaxy tab, HTC one phone, ( these three on wireless internet) and our hp desktop (hard wired). I can download from each program with all devices as well as browse internet and play YouTube videos. I've rebooted each device. Rebooted modem, router, as well as removed the router from the equation. I had my local isp (Wow! Internet) reboot their end twice. They say they have no problems in our area and it's not on their end.... Anyone ran across this or have any ideas?

Had an AMD HP G62-227CL laptop that overheated and required motherboard replacement with similar Intel motherboard. Old board clocked at 2.2 MHZ .. new one is 2.0 MHZ.
Board I got from Ebay works but now computer believes that it is a Compaq CQ42 Laptop. Do not know the model number, which I would need on HPs site to download BIOs upgrades.

Is there a way to tell which bios I need or what model I now have?

Thank you,


A:Replaced Failed Motherboard.. now how do I determine model number and which BIOS to download?

Finding a bios update rather then the one hp would give for this board. Would be next to none.
You could check a few of the support pages for this model. Which their are a lot Of
Maybe find out the motherboard you have bought.

Could be your provider. With whom or what service are you connected?
Also, it could be right there on your system. As you know, the actual usable speed is limited by the slowest component... software, memory, motherboard, etc.
Can you try it at a friend or other known connection that you know to be fast, as a first step?

Hi guys I have recently days ago changed ISPs and have been getting good speeds as opposed to what I was getting with my old ISP I have Netmeter on my PC which tracks bandwidth usage and also shows in real time the speed of downloads However when downloading something such as a torrent I am getting about mbps reported from the torrent programme but mbps reported by netmeter I am not using the internet for anything else apart from downloading the torrent I am wondering why there is a mbps difference between the actual download speed and what netmeter is telling me I am getting Could that extra mbps be being used elsewhere I m not sure what it could be steam actual download speed reported between and Discrepancy is closed itunes is closed web browser is closed no other things are being downloaded I would expect that if netmeter says - kbps that my torrent programme Discrepancy between actual and reported download speed would also be reporting the same number but it is staying at kbps Any ideas or is netmeter just over estimating the D L speed nbsp

A:Discrepancy between actual and reported download speed

Just a quick input:
Doesn't torrent programs also upload data? Perhaps that is where your missing 1mbps is going.

I'm not familiar with Netmeter, but I know that some (cheap) programs actually treats the upload and download as the same thing, and instead calls this "Network speed" or "Network flow".

No I am not talking about sharing illegal content.

I get internet for free atm from a relatives work. Anyways my isp turned off my internet last week. I called them and they said they detected I was using a bitorrent type application and they are against there policy because such programs eat up there bandwidth. However 2 years ago I had the exact same thing happen and when I spoke to there techi on the phone he said if I limmitted my uploads to one person then it should be fine. He indicated its the multiple connecting uploads that is the problem and the downloads do not matter. Ok now a few years later poof they no longer offer any info they just repeated we do not allow any bittorrent type program because it takes up to much bandwidth, with no details.

So here I am on techspot, what can I do? Is there a work around?

A:How can I download torrents and not get dropped by my ISP?

In programs like uTorrent there is a max number of connections setting. You can reduce that number. I think the default is 300 or 400 in uTorrent. Drop it a bit and you should be fine.

But imho the real answer is to get a better isp...

I have been looking at a PC which has a low download speed, 1180Kbps, when access the Internet via a 3COM wireless access point. This access point has the number 7000-000-732 but I cannot see such a model on the Net.. The nearest similar one seems to be the 3Com® Wireless 7760 11a/b/g PoE Access Point.

Any idea why this download is so slow? The main office PCs download much quicker.



A:Slow download speed using access point?


My mistake! How many times do I have to tell myself not to act on assumptions!!

I tested the download speed in the office today and found it was only 1800Kbps so the 1200Kbps at the PC with the wireless connection (67%) is not too bad I guess. I had assumed that the office speed would be higher.

It would seem that the ISP has allowed their customer to stay on a low Internet access speed..

Hey everyone. I'm looking for a router that has the feature of limiting bandwidth on the hosts on my network.

I live with a few roommates and they are always downloading, taking up all the bandwidth we get out of our ISP's monthly allowance. We always go over, and we all end up paying heavy fees.

Anyone know of good routers that have a feature that enables, say, "20 GB monthly for IP 192.168.x.x" or something like that? I know of routers that have QoS features that limit the download SPEED, but that really doesn't help my issue.

My router is TP-Link, so enough said lol. There's no features really to control this sort of scenario. I know D-Links are pretty good for controlling bandwidth and limitations.

Any ideas?

It appears the drivers are not installed, or the incorrect drivers are installed, or you have a defective RealTek. Some RealTeks have a switch that must be set. Some RealTek's require updated firmware download to work with VISTA. Firmware and driver updates are always available at the mfg site, but not always easy to find ezactly where they are..

5. make sure router firmware is up to date
6. make sure drivers for NIC on the systems be up to day
7. make sure 7 is up to date
8. if okay go to 9 if not go to 10
9. For the Windows 7 network tweaks..
Below is my tweak after modification.

Note: Same tweaks are used on 100mbps, 1000mbps, 802.11g, 802.11n.

To access this under Windows 7 do this:

Go under all programs,
right click on command prompt click on Run As Administrator.

Type: netsh int tcp show global > c:\mysettings.txt

Exit out and go into the computer folder and pull out this file and open it in notepad. Copy and paste your results in the next reply back from you.


If you done all, reset the router back to the factory defaults
Scan system for pest, registry errors, HDD fragmentation

Still nothing, un-plug the power on the router and modem and wait 30 seconds
Reboot all systems

Router could have duff ports (bad) try different ports
If still a no go try a different router.

Whenever I'm downloading something (like from Fileplanet), it always starts off at pretty high speeds, like around 300k per second. But it slowly drops down to around 200k and hovers around there.

I'm curious as to why it drops to a stable speed and then stays there, instead of screaming all the time.



A:Why does my download rates slowly drop? (curious)

What's your download cap? If it's 1.5 mbit then it would make sense that you get a burst which is above your max and you slowly drop down to your max as your downloader is constantly calculating download speed by the amount of the file received/time. 1.5 mbit would be just under 200K/sec - about 187 K/sec. Calculating in your burst speed at the beginning you may get just over that if you maintain your max speed. Just a thought, I'm not sure that this is the correct answer to your question but you may wanna check your current cable modem/dsl config file by going to

im in a house share of 5 and we have virgin broadband 20mbps, when i download and one of my house mates isnt i get a good speed of 150-200kbps but as soon as he starts to download i get around 50kbps. despite if everyone is downloading he always seems to get 100+ kbps download speed.
we are both forwarded to the router and his system isnt much better than mine.
just wondering why this is? is there anyway he has allocated his pc to get more bandwidth or limited ours?
any help would be well appreciated, thanks.
ps is there any prgram that will monitor the network usage for each individual pc?

That confuses me. I did the speedtest and I got 2307 kbps with ethernet and I got
5191 kbps download speed with wireless. Why is that? shouldn't being directly connected make your connection faster?

A:Faster download speed with wireless than ethernet?

If the speed tests continue to show this problem, it is also possible that you have a less than perfectly crimped Ethernet cable. I have seen poorly crimped network cables work but offer reduced transmission speeds. Just try another patch cable to rule this out as an issue.

you could try to reset the device. press and hold the power on button and at the same time press the reset button with the stylus (see attached pic)
if you need the data try to make a backup first. all data that have not been installed originally will be lost on reset.

I was wandering, is there some Download manager that I could install on my USB flashdrive and use it on any computer, so that I e.g. start downloading 500MB file and finish some 30% then I go to another PC and insert my USB and continue there and so on.
And also, is there some P2P client that can do similar things

Those chipsets you listed are built in to the PC's motherboard and as a practical matter, you can't change it. You will have to buy a separate graphics card that meets the minimum (but preferably more than minimum) requirements of the game.

We would need to know what PC you have now to make a recommendation. We need to know what kind of graphics card slot you have (if any) on your motherboard.

I'm not familiar with the number you gave, but, if it has a PATA (IDE) HDD, you must change the jumper on the drive to the slave position and then install it in another computer in the "slave" position on the ribbon cable. (The connector in the middle). You can usually get the HDD jumper diagram by downloading the manual to your drive at the manufacturer's web site.

The short answer is to go to a web site that offers videos for download,

Make sure you have a goood firewall and Anti-virus (Zone Alarm/Comodo/AVG)

Get two or three good Anti spyware programs (Ad-Aware,SpybotSD,AVG anti spyware),

A:Driver Download Trouble

Hi and welcome to the TS Forum :wave:

First off why do you want a driver ? XP as far as i know doesnt need any drivers for any make or model or CD -DVD or CD unit, I have never added a driver for any unit on any PC I have ever setup.

But to answer your question a BIN file is a file designed to be burnt to CD or DVD and can be opened with programs such as WinISO or similar, or you can use tools such as Alcohol to mount the BIN file and read the contents directly.

If you're running XP then it should have some generic drivers for you to use (I think the same applies for 2000). If not, try downloading some generic drivers for any old network card and see what happens. If this is still causing you trouble then it is possible that there could be an issue other than drivers - but I think if you find some generic ones you should be OK

I have a LAN between my house and my neighboor's; we're using patch uni-directional antennas to send the signal, with switches on each side hooked up to other computers. When we first set it all up, the data transfer speeds were great, so we hard-mounted the equipment.

However, as of late, the quality of the connection has deteriorated substantially on my download speed. My download speed is horrendous. For some reason, the upload speed remains the same.

Brave techs...

What are you using for WLAN and WWAN?

Download TCP Optimizer and Advanced Windows Care both are freeware.

1. Run Advanced Windows Care on all PCs
2. Run TCP Optimizer to tweak your network even more.

There is a neat program it's not freeware but you can try it for 30 days. Wireless Mon let you see how your network in the wireless world is doing. Lot of good info and a nice animated radar scope for wireless connection and more technical stuff in a sniffer type tool.

3. Run Wireless Mon on all wireless PCs

There is a lot of tweaking you two brave techs can try out. You might have to place a wireless third bridge repeater somethere so you can make sure your connection between the two are at Excellent Strength, not Very Good. Make sure you use Windows XP Wireless Connection than your third party ulitity. To me this provides better integration when wireless is concern.

If you're using a wireless access point devices on a wired network you can get better performance and setting the wired PC connected from 4K (default for all versions of Windows OS NT - 2003 Server to 64K buffers to TX/RX. Use the Advanced Windows Care but make sure you don't use 2.x Beta.

Download speed can be increased by setting the Max connection from 6 to 60 but I would only do that on 1 PC that you use for downloading. More than one PC you can set it to 40 to 50.

If you really want to get more speed you could build your own LINUX router which is easy to do. What this would really increase downloading speed, but again really one PC would get a boost. IPCOP is Router Server OS. Use that on an old PC you're not using. Need two PCI NICs to get that to work right. 3Com or Realik (Dlink)

When I move 300MB file from one PC to another say from first floor to the second floor it only takes 30secs or less. 1GB file take 50 secs to 1min to transfer. I make images of all my PCs HD so in case some goes wrong that process takes only 6 mins for 7GB to transfer the HDD over the network and create a image PC1.TIB. Still not bad. There are numerious of network tweaks that can speed up both the Up/dwl speeds.

hey all. im thinking of buying this case


In the specs, what do the dimensions mean.

W/O package: L:445+35 W:200 H:412(mm)
W package: L:535 W:220 H:456(mm)

I need it to fit inside a cabinet style space. Without 'package' it is fine and will fit. With the package it wont. But, what is the package though? Is it the actual product packaging (cardboard box, plastic, etc). Package seems vague to me and I would be grateful if someone could tell me what is meant by 'package'.


A:silly case dimension package

Yeah, with package would be with the actual box it comes in(cardboard etc).

So the one you're looking for is w/o package.

Hi, I really need to update my Asus k8v-se deluxe drivers, but there are about 1901032424 drivers and i have no idea which one to get. I need basically the "package", i guess you'd call it.

for the first part put motherboard, for the second part choose socket 754, and for model, select k8v-se deluxe. Please help me out.

heres the website:

A:NEED Help updating mobo drivers. have the website but dont know what to download!!!!!

What drivers do you need? Sound, video, bios. Just scroll down the drivers page and pick the new drivers you need. Just make sure they are 32 bit if you are running a 32 bit operating system or 64 bit if you are running XP64bit. Just a note, the beta drivers aren't fully tested yet and might not be as stable as the last version.

After days of research I'm going to be switching to Wildblue Satellite from dial-up. My only concern is the FAP.

I plan to get the Pro package so I have higher limits. I sell on eBay 6 days a week, 8 hours a day. I must upload photos with my auctions. The only downloading is updates to my program.

Before I commit I need to find out how much I actually upload and download on an average day. I may not need the bigger package or I may need to wait until I can afford Hughesnet instead.

Are there any free programs online I can get to keep track of this for the next few days or is there a way I can figure this out on my computer itself?

Nero is the latest edition of Nero 6. If you are having problems burning disks you might need a firmware update for your actual burner, not a Nero update.

Not sure if this the right forum for this, but although I have a 8meg download capability, my upload is just under 1meg. Does anyone know if I can increase this? I heard the technology is different.. on the different lines. Would like to really get them closer to equal or improve this. Anyone know how much would it cost, or if there any ISPs in the UK that would do this. Thanks for any help.
